A Guide to Finding ALL of the 50th Anniversary Statues in Disney World!

Disney World has SO MUCH planned for its 50th anniversary that it will last an entire 18 months after the celebrations kick off on October 1st.

The 50th Anniversary Celebrations Are Here!

One of the ways the parks are celebrating is by introducing golden statues of some of Disney’s most beloved characters. And, they’ve already started to make their way around Disney World, so we’re giving you a look at EVERY place you can find the new 50th anniversary statues!

Not all of the statues are out yet, so we’ll continue to update as Disney displays more of them!

Magic Kingdom

Cinderella Castle

Main Street, U.S.A.

When you first enter the Magic Kingdom, you can find Lady and the Tramp ready to greet everyone who is visiting!

As you are admiring Cinderella Castle, you can find SO many statues in the central Hub area! You can spot Mickey and Minnie Mouse

If you look off to the side, Tinker Bell is in the tree towards the entrance to Liberty Square…

In the Hub area across from Crystal Palace, you can even find Pooh and Piglet giving each other a big hug to celebrate the 50th anniversary!

Look at that cute little duo!

Jaq and Gus are helping Cinderella set up the 50th anniversary decorations, so you can find them on the turret to the right of Cinderella Castle!

Adventureland

You’ll also find a few friends scattered throughout Magic Kingdom’s lands as well! Over in Adventureland, Abu is hanging out on the entrance sign with a golden “50” medallion…

Fantasyland

If you’re looking for iconic duos, Cogsworth and Lumiere are also chilling out next to the archways by Prince Charming’s Carousel. Anybody else more excited for a trip to Be Our Guest Restaurant after seeing them?

Pinocchio is also near the Fantasyland archways, but more towards the Pinocchio Village Haus (of course).

If you journey a little farther into Fantasyland, more statues are nestled near popular attractions. By the Mad Tea Party, it’s no surprise you’ll find the Cheshire Cat

Tomorrowland

While Stitch’s Great Escape may be a ride of the past, Stitch is still ready to celebrate Disney World’s 50th anniversary! He’s hanging out on Tomorrowland’s Purple Wall with a golden “50” medallion he probably stole from somewhere!

Near the Chinese Theatre

At Hollywood Studios, all the statues are located in the open area in front of the Chinese Theatre, where Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway is. To the left of Hollywood Boulevard, we spotted two fan-favorite Star Wars droids — R2-D2 and BB-8.

Closer to Echo lake, there were some Pixar pals hanging out, including the fabulous Edna Mode.

But she wasn’t the only character from The Incredibles Frozone was there as well!

And nearby you’ll find a rather new Pixar character, Joe Gardner from Soul! He’s even got his piano out to treat us all with some jazz.

And last but certainly not least, we’ve got Woody and his gal Bo Peep. Aren’t they cute?! Their statue is to the right side of Hollywood Boulevard as well.

  1. My husband and I will be there the week following Thanksgiving. We are looking forward to seeing all the changes. I have been going to Disney since 1978, and him since 1985.
